The perfect backcountry partner is someone who is up for anything and will never let you down whether the conditions are all time, apocalyptic or something in between. Sounds a lot like the Locator 104. Multi-day hut trip in your future? The lightweight construction will keep you going on the skin track. Blower pow in the sidecountry? Ample rocker and a blended tail shape let you point it down the fall line or throw it sideways in bottomless snow on demand. When you need one ski with a soft snow focus that can do it all with predictable performance, the Locator 104 is ready.

great open terrain ski

Originally posted at www.armadaskis.com on Feb 1, 2024
I have been skiing the ARV 116 for a decade and love them -- best all mountain resort ski ever made -- I purchased the Locator 104 this year expecting similar performance - the Locator is a stiff ski that can eat up any hard pack and open glade terrain -- I was very disappointed with the fast turning capability necessary for tree skiing with this ski design -- I regret the purchase and now will be looking to change to the ARV 116 UL for touring needs.

People love Curated Experts

It was a pleasure working with Henry!
5 /5
I've been using the same skis for 13 years and have been agonizing over getting a new setup. After doing tons of research and spinning in circles, I decided to reach out to a Curated expert for help. Henry was exactly what I needed. He made sound recommendations based on my needs, was responsive to my many questions, and served as the voice of reason I needed. He also worked out a good deal. A couple hours after reaching out to Curated and connecting with Henry, I made my long awaited purchase. I can't wait to use my new set up.

So helpful with helping me decide. I ended up spending more than I wanted but feel great knowing that I’ve got the right gear that’ll hopefully last me a while. And also he gave me so many other options that were in and below my budget. Great service, awesome guy.

Wasn't planning on making my purchase today but he steered me in the right direction with prompt knowledge and recommendations that took all of my input into account. Not pushy in the slightest. Left me with enough information right off the bat to keep it brief and feel like I had what I needed to make a decision.

Hayden was patient with me on the process. He made multiple recommendations and then adjusted those recommendations after I had barriers to the overall price. Ultimately I went with his personal recommendations because he instills confidence through his dialogue, reviews and overall approach.

Ryan is very knowledgeable and used my profile and follow up conversations to match equipment to fit my specific needs. His responsiveness was on point and he gave me plenty of options and data (not just opinions) to help make my decision. Will definitely reach out when it comes to buying more equipment for my crew!

Leo was such a help when overwhelmed with choices. Based upon my current set up, we were able to find a much needed upgrade at a great price. Leo's expertise helped guide me to my final decision and I never felt pressured to make a decision until I was ready. Super excited for my gear to arrive. Thanks Leo!

Grant was the best!
5 /5
I’m used to settling for less than optimal feedback from customer service reps and could tell pretty quickly that Grant was More than that. He definitely knew his stuff and took me on a journey of different boards until I felt really comfortable about my purchase. I bought a board based on his recommendation and excited to ride it!

Very responsive and personable. Felt choices were options fit to personal use and not forced in any direction. Will use Curated again for other family members and recommend specifically due to experience with Taylor and competitive pricing offered.

Leo moved me from unsure and indecisive to fully outfitted with a shop nearby to assist, and he did it at a great price. There's no doubt he's an expert, which helped me get passed the endless options in buying skis, and he did it without any pressure to make a final purchase. I did make the purchase and I'll be back in the future.
